Sail Date: Mar 2019
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

We chose this cruise to see some of South America and cruise through the Panama Canal. We have traveled on the Norwegian Sun previously and had a good experience. The ship was upgraded last year and looks good. The staterooms are now elegant and other areas of the ship nice. This was a repositioning cruise, so there were seven sea days, which was a bit much for us, as we don't participate in bingo, karaoke, art auctions, knitting, etc, although I would have to say the ship did do a good job in offering all kinds of daily activities catered to the mostly older passengers. We are 60, but the average age is a bit older. The ship never felt crowded, except on sea days around the pool.

Embarkation was easy, as we arrived late, so no crowds. Disembarkation in Miami was slow and bottlenecked through customs. Probably not NCL's fault.

Service on the ship was generally good. Cabin, bar, restaurant, drills, excursions, port disembarkation, shows, lectures, etc. were all well organized. Only complaint was disembarkation for ship shore excursions, which was a joke. We were an hour late for every excursion due to a very poorly designed system.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MB

One of the best cabins we have been in. Recently refurbished mini suite on deck 11 front. Nice and quiet area of ship close to fitness center, Spinnaker lounge and pools. Great bath room with very good water pressure. Lots of space and curtain separating bed from sitting area came in handy each day as my wife gets up much earlier than I do.

Port Reviews


Very expensive private tour that covered a lot. We felt we did get our money's worth.
